Todd RundgrenFade Away

The day is done, the blinds are drawn The sound of afternoon is gone The corner store has locked it's door And everyone has left for home When their sleepy little heads Settle snug inside their beds You and I will stay and watch the sun fade away The balladeer, the buccaneer The liar, the man who would be king The cavalier, the profiteer The one who knows only suffering As the cannons gather rust, All their castles turn to dust You and I will stay and see them fade away We are on an endless flight my friend With no beginning and no end I've forgotten more than I remember Sometimes I want to hide myself away But I know there's no escape We must go on, go on forever The sea will rise, mountains fall The earth will turn itself upside down But we have seen it all before, We will always be around In a hundred million years When the planet disappears You and I will stay And watch the world fade away And in a million trillion years When the stars all disappear You and I will stay And watch it all fade away © 2018
